    Is my Intel HD 530 driver up to date?


    During a forum discussion elsewhere about video performance a puzzle has arisen. A friend has a brand new i5-6600K, Win 10, with Intel's own HD 530 Graphics, at driver version 21.20.16.4590.

    My i7-6700K, Win 10 (bought April 2016), also with 530 graphics, has version 20.19.15.4474 dated June 2016.

    Using Update Drivers from Device Manager, after the search I get told I already have the latest drivers.

    Can anyone explain the apparent contradiction please?

    EDIT:
    So meanwhile I used the Intel Graphics Update Utility which I found here
    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html

    That indicated there were two more recent versions:





    I installed the latest, which now matches my friend's: 21.20.16.4590.


    So that leaves the oustanding question: why did Win 10 Pro believe my driver was up to date when in fact it was two versions old?

    Windows never updates to the "latest" available versions. It's quite common for Windows to play it safe with known working versions.

    MS can't test/verify every new driver update . Often new versions are released before they can be 'validated'. It's always prudent to search out drivers yourself to have the latest.
